Umenoyado was relocated to Teraguchi in Katsuragi

In July 2022, Umenoyado opened a new brewery in Katsuragi, with the aim of refining their sake production and fostering a stronger connection with customers, providing a welcoming space for people to gather and immerse themselves in the sake-making process.


Company-operated store

In addition to Umenoyado's renowned sake and liqueurs, visitors have the opportunity to indulge in exclusive original beverages and gelato available only at the company-operated store. Alongside immersive brewery tours and hands-on ume syrup making experiences, seasonal events add further excitement, making a visit here an absolute must-do.


Tour route. A display showing the differences between table rice and sake rice

If you've only seen table rice before, you'd be surprised to see how tall sake rice grows! Its height makes it vulnerable to falling over quickly in a typhoon. According to statistics from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries in 2018, sake rice only makes up about 1% of Japan's total rice production. This makes it incredibly precious rice indeed.


If you're planning a trip to Japan and intend to visit the Kansai area, be sure to add this brewery tour to your itinerary! In the meantime, explore the wide range of Umenoyado products available in our store, including premium sake and flavorful liqueurs.
